In light of yet another scandal brewing in Washington... one that involves "gals" giving massages to important men in high places... here's a little cat trivia that you might not know about:
"Prostitutes have been called cats since the fifteenth century, for the simple reason that the urban female cat attracts many toms when she is on heat and mates with them one after the other. As early as 1401, men were warned of the risks of chasing the 'cattis tailis', or the cat's tail." (From Desmond Morris, Catwatching).
Hence, the term "Cathouse".
Here's a picture of my cathouse:
But there's no way that I would allow any tom to come to my cathouse. I will SMACK them hard with my paws.
